Katydid is a letterpress studio based in Brooklyn, NY. We are inspired by design, fine art, family, letterpress, and combining these elements to create playful, elegant, and singular paper goods.

Katydid was founded in 2009 by Kate Lucas-Falk. Kate studied fine art, drawing, teaching, and therapy, most of which have little to do with traditional letterpress printing. Katydid was founded in order to create stationery combining Kate's own drawings with letterpress printing. Technical aid and general support comes from her husband, who is a silent partner. Their daughter doesn't contribute at all.

Kate prints on a cast iron press that’s more than one hundred years old, and named the business katydid because that’s what her family called her during her childhood in the midwest.
